No Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving approaches and we are suppose to ask ourselves what it is that we are thankful for. And as I attempt to contemplate this I find I have a lot to complain about, but I don't think about all the things that I am 'grateful' for. So, I am going with my first instinct and instead of listing things that I am thankful for, I am listing things that I am not thankful for.
  1. The WB when the sound is off or it does that bloopy thing and I miss a couple seconds of my show.
  2. People who call me between 7 and 9 pm. You must all know by now that I WILL be watching my shows.
  3. 6-8 page papers
  4. Sharing the freaking Gospel. Darn you brother Jorgenson and your excessive happiness.
  5. Nights not being long enough for me to sleep or class being too early and waking me up.
  6. Accutane
  7. BYU parking
  8. People talking during Smallville
  9. StarWars (I mean really, what was the universe thinking when that happened?)
  10. Frosted car windshield and no gloves

Okay, now you have my current bottom ten. Lets hear yours, if you have them. What are you ungrateful for?

Has it come at last?
Will cold air blow?
Are memories of sunny days past?
Will it snow?
Will my heart ache for what once was?
Or will it beat without pause?

Will confrontations be mended?
Will I be torn?
Can a family be blended?
Will I mourn?
How can thankfullness be found?
My heart continues to pound.
